I don’t know… I’d say Amato is pretty much on par with, say Elon Musk.

A gerontocracy in Italy?
Oh My God What GIF by Robert E Blackmon


Maybe it is a blessing in disguise. He is old and doesn’t like change and recommends we shut it all down?

I don’t think it is ageist to point out that appointing someone who is already 5 years passed the average life expectancy in Italy might not be a good way to start off a new organisation.

I respect older people and hope to be one myself one day but the fact is he will more than likely be unable to perform his role sooner rather than later.

With Italy being one of the most corrupt European countries, I’m not surprised. Palms being greased; table’s being set for whatever could be gleaned for Big AI in Italy.

Reminds me of when Ted Stevens was in charge of the Senate committee regulating the internet.
